Workshop at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany

In recent years, it has become difficult to follow the multitude of projects and approaches in the field of address term research. Now it is time to bring together researchers studying different languages and working in different frameworks, such as sociolinguistics, pragmatics and grammatical description.
In general, the main question to be answered is: Who uses which form of address when, and why? While older approaches often assumed rather static and wholesale systems of address terms, it seems to become clear that models capturing the dynamicity of address systems are more appropriate to describe the linguistic facts.
